Grambling Grabs Final Spot in SWAC Tournament
By virtue of a 2-0 win over Alabama A&M on Sunday afternoon, Grambling State claimed the final spot in the SWAC Softball Championship coming up on May 10-13 at Shea Brothers Softball Complex in Irondale.
With Grambling's victory, Southern's hopes were dashed as the Lady Tigers joined Texas Southern, Prairie View A&M and Arkansas-Pine Bluff as West Division representatives. Mississippi Valley State, Jackson State, Alabama A&M and Alabama State will be the teams from the East.
The only issue left to be decided is the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds in the East. Those will be decided when Bama State squares off against UAPB in a makeup game from the SWAC Softball Round-up on May 6. The Hornets can claim the third seed with a win, but a UAPB victory would give the No. 3 seed to A&M. The Bulldogs took 2-of-3 from ASU earlier this season to earn the tiebreaker.
The brackets for the SWAC Tournament will be announced once all of the seedings have been decided.
